Central London Accommodation
We don't arrange or organize accommodation for candidates attending our courses, as everyone has different needs. However, we have put together a list of local accommodation, and links to accommodation resources, and you can find these below. We don't endorse or recommend any of the establishments below, and take no responsibility for any bookings made.
Doctor in the House provide well-priced accommodation for doctors attending courses and conferences around the UK
Late Rooms offer good value hotel accommodation across the UK, and can be searched by area so you won't find yourself too far from the course venue.
LastMinute also offer good deals on hotel stays. The 'secret' hotels can be very good value for money, so are worth a look if you don't mind not knowing where you're going to be staying until you pay. Sometimes if you Google the description you can find out where they are before you book though.
There are a number of Premier Travel Inns in Central London, including one near Euston, and another behind King's Cross train station. They are normally good, well-appointed but reasonable hotels, and often have sales or special offers if you book in advance.

What can I expect to get from an MRCP Part 1 Course?
As you start your MRCP Part 1 revision, you will find how difficult it is to cover the MRCP syllabus in its entirety. You need to think of it as investing in MRCP Part 2 and PACES however, as hard work for MRCP Part 1 will make it easier to approach these exams in the future. The MRCP Part 2 exam essentially takes the theoretical knowledge you've acquired for Part 1 and asks you to apply it to clinical practice. PACES takes this one-step further by assessing how you use this in a real life encounter. We design our revision courses to take some of the hard work out of MRCP Part 1 revision – our expert lecturers know exactly where to focus your revision and will lead you through the syllabus with comprehensive teaching, targeted around key areas and focusing on commonly failed questions. The 5-day course covers the entire syllabus and includes five mock exams, plus additional pre-course and post-course mock exams; whereas the 3-day intensive course is more of an overview of the syllabus, but both provide you with targeted revision to ensure you get the results you deserve after the exam is over.
Do your MRCP Part 1 revision courses include access to PasTest Online?
Our 5-day revision course includes free access to the PasTest Online MRCP Part 1 course, but the 3-day course does not. You can purchase PasTest Online separately. It includes over 4,000 questions all the way across the syllabus. Our indispensable online revision is in exam format, and includes mock exams and fixed exams to test your preparedness just before the exam. Every exam sitting we add the exam paper from the exam sitting before, i.e. before the May exam, we add the January exam paper. These mock exams are the best way to test your knowledge just before the exam as they allow you to see what your results might have been if you'd have taken the previous exam.
How do the results of your MRCP Part 1 candidates compare to those of other revision providers?
We're proud of our MRCP Part 1 results, and we can't imagine that anyone else can do any better! For the January 2010 exam diet, over 70% of our candidates that used the MRCP 1 Online Course passed! Compared to the average pass rate of 35-49% we think our results are quite impressive, and show just how fantastic our MRCP Part 1 courses are.
What can I do to guarantee the MRCP Part 1 results I want?
Unfortunately, there's no easy way to passing MRCP Part 1. Work through the syllabus, make revision notes and then test yourself on the knowledge. As you get closer to the exam then your timing becomes ever more important, and this is when you should be concentrating on mock exams. Mock exams are built to reflect the exam exactly, both in terms of the way the paper is split between subjects and question types, but perhaps more importantly, also the time you need to go through the paper. On the day, you'll have three hours to go through 100 questions, so mock exams are the best way to prepare for this. Testing your knowledge on the past papers is the ultimate way to revise, so recommend using these mock exams in the last few weeks before the exam date.
